- Wedding: October 2014
I’ve been stalking this site for a while now but have never made a post. I’m looking for some advice.
I’m planning my Fall Wedding for next year. I want an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception at the same location. I have found THE perfect venue. It’s a gorgeous rustic restored barn. It’s huge, and on a beautiful property that would be amazing for the ceremony. They rent it out by the weekend, so you get it Friday at 9:00 am to Sunday at 6:00 pm. And it fits into my very small budget at $650 for the whole weekend! The one thing not perfect about it? They don’t allow any alcohol whatsoever. I’m having a hard time deciding if I want to book it or not (they even have the weekend I want open) but the alcohol thing is bothering me. My fiance said he isn’t bothered by the no alcohol bit. My mother says guest won’t stay very long without the booze. I haven’t been able to find any other place that I can afford that I love this much.
So I don’t know what to do. Should I get the place and have a dry reception? Or should I go with a venue I don’t love as much so my guests can get a little tipsy. What do you guys think?
